Here’s a list of some things that we’re not very good at:
1. Updating this blog.
2. Talking about ourselves.
3. Remembering to bring tupperware home
So, this blog post comes as a struggle. We’re here to tell you guys that last month, we, umm, well, we won a CLIO Award. Yeah, that kind of Clio Award. The one that Don Draper always wins. The one that has been the mecca of advertising awards since 1959.
Our animation for TOMS Shoes won us a Bronze Clio and boy oh boy, we were up against some seriously stiff competition. Oscar acceptance speeches always start with ‘It’s an honour to just be nominated…’ and usually you’re thinking yeah right whatever you’re just saying that, but now we know exactly how it feels. Just to see our name on the page next to some of the best animations of 2013 was, seriously, a true honour.
So, Jay and Leah hightailed it to NYC early last month to sashay down the red carpet, eat a delicious billion-course meal, watch Whoopi Goldberg say funny things, and witness that painfully truthful speech by lifetime achievement award recipient Jerry Seinfeld.
And now here we are, humbly telling you that this happened.
More on the tupperware later.
